”Life doesn’t excuse”
”Life is a struggle”
”Never give up”
We’ve heard all the theories, all philosophies. Most of us have been through books urging us to go on, in the face of all adversities. Paulo Coelho says us to desire something so that the universe can conspire us to get it.
Call me cynical, I don’t believe it to always work. The World works in ways too mysterious for us to write off in just a feel-good sentence.
We hope, we persevere, we struggle to achieve something we always thought we deserved. We fight to win a battle, to win a argument, to win someone’s heart. We don’t always succeed. Yet something, a voice, mysterious, whispers inside us to go on. And we keep going on.
But how long is more than enough? How much effort is more than required? How much is too much?
There are times when you give your everything. When you are so done that the result of your efforts can't even compensate your exhaustion, be it negative. You give so much to something, and you are so tired of giving, you just have to let go. Ease away gracefully before it squeezes your soul, your beliefs, makes you gasp for breath.
Sometimes you have let someone else win the argument, you have to let someone win a ego-battle, you have to stop convincing someone to give their heart. You need to let go. You need to take your closure.
You should acknowledge yourself that you have proven everything you have to prove to yourself and to your God. You're a hero even if you lose. And if you feel that things can't go any worse now, you're right, because things will only get better from now on.
Say yourself, "Well done! I am proud of you. I am proud to be you" and move on. You deserve a closure.
Live long, let go, and prosper. The world is beautiful even for the people who have tried and lost.
P. S. – Dedicated to those who find it tough to let go. May God bless your souls
